The "Rockin C" Codie Ranch is mine!!!!



I am speechless! They accepted my offer! I went almost 10% below the asking price, which they had already reduced by over 15% just recently. My Realtor even said she didn't think they would accept when we wrote it up this morning.

If this isn't what I affectionately term a "God Thing", then I don't know what is!! Of course it is still contingent on inspections and appraisals and all that legal stuff, but so far it's all good!

So anyway, maybe we can plan a big ole codie reunion next summer!!!

Good for you! Yeee Haaaa:




I can hear the excitement coming across the wires!

Yes, it sure sounds like a Codie Bus Trip will be in order, I'm so happy for you!
(Oh heck with the bus, maybe we'll all horseback ride on down! LOL)

It'll be a Codie Round UP!

YEE HAAAA! Ride 'em Cow Girl!!!!!

Good 4 U!

Man.. if that is the case I might be able to buy Tennessee after all and still afford the commute!
(BTW and FWIW I really love Tennessee.. I used to say if I won the NY lotto I was going to just go down and buy the whole darn State, but not the TVA stuff or the Cities!)

Yippy Ay Oh Kayayyy!!! Roundin' up the wagons and loading the codie bus too!!!



This is so exciting, and it's true, coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous. This house was meant for you.

Now, let's get packing our supplies, we gotta have cookouts on the ranch....who's bringing the beans???

Wait for MEEEEEE!!!! My horse is not cooperating :horse

Cowboys dont do stuff like that anymore!:lame:

But a Rockin' C ranch is a great name. Grats on the new land.

Tell us about it, how many acres you get?
I love being out in the open surrounded by trees and wildlife. It's a good way to sit and reflect about all the great things God has given you.

Congrats,
It is meant for you to have the ranch. Let me know when you want us and I will be there. Oh yeah I have to bring my dog, if you don't mind, he is little.

I got 11 acres in all. About 9 of it is the pasture; it's all fenced but it is barbed wire which I will have to change if I do ever really get a horse(s). The barn is in really good shape, too. The kids want half of it to build on in a few years but there's plenty for everyone!! All around it is land owned by one family whose father decreed in his will somehow that it could not be sold for development (which is happening to all the land around my house right now) and had to stay in the family. My boys are dying to go hunting on it but I think it is leased to someone for hunting.

I am SO not kidding about anybody that wants to come visit! I feel like you guys are my best friends even though we only know each other in cyberspace.

I was just kidding about picking up a cowboy along the way, though. Not ready for that just yet.

I'll be your huckleberry. (Gotta love Tombstone)

What I meant was the yippie kay yay from ann's post (no offense). I know all you yankee's think us southerners ride horses to work (Texans get it bad).

11 acres is awesome, thats plenty of land to do whatever you want with. Horses are expensive but definitely worth it.

If you can afford it get some ATV's to play with, that'll keep the boys happy for years. Nice job.

There is a pond but it's just for watering the livestock. The old gent that lives there used to have cattle.
